Early Sunday morning while getting ready for work some strong winds and rain blew in. We could hear the winds, then we heard some noise but didn’t think a lot of it.
Upon arriving home I noticed that all the leaves in the yard closest to the driveway and in the neighbors yard were now up against the neighbors house and our fence, and the trash cans were gone. There were three in this corner of the fence.
I found the other two on the other side of the shed, one by the tree and the other over by the rock wall in the leaves. The lid is up closer to my compost back in the far corner of the yard.
My poor greenhouse that was up a week ago with my plants inside got twisted and a hole in one corner. )-:
All my plants got knocked over that were on a wrought iron stand, on top of plants sitting on the ground.
Ripped my avocado tree out of pot, and bent up my pineapple plant. (We put my greenhouse in a spot where it’s gets little to no wind and even anchored it down).
Don’t think we had a tornado, but we had some kind of rotating turbulence come through. Notice how leaves are pushed up in a pile with kind of a circle clearing.
See the light spot on the right next to the curb, that’s where is was. The greenhouse behind me from where I’m taking this picture.
Found my cedar picket flag on the ground about 15′ from where it was attached with wire to our chain length fence.
Our large metal star was found out in the yard about 50′ from where it was.
A few cement statues where turned over but other stuff near wasn’t even touched.
Oh and our kitchen window screen over facing driveway was bent up from opposite corner from the way the turbulation came.
No real damage except twisting my greenhouse up and tearing a hole, but I believe we can fix it.
We were fortunate that there was no real damage from the storm, and so sad that others in East Texas didn’t fare as well, I believe they had a tornado.
This weather is getting crazier by the year. More & more tornadoes, and lots of flooding, and even earthquakes where we’ve never had them.
About 6 months back we were sitting in our Texas room/den when we felt the house move, like rolling from one side to the other. Nothing major here in Texas but a lot of small earthquakes in the last few years. Scary!!!
Well enough about the crazy weather, what are your plans for the weekend? I know what we will be doing, putting up my greenhouse, again.
